Audience favourites Sol Gabetta and Giovanni Antonini in a virtuoso programme

Young Argentinean cellist Sol Gabetta has caused quite a stir in recent years, with her ravishing but subtle cello playing. Orchestras and soloists are queueing up to work with her. With its tender romanticism, playful humour and mischievous sparring matches, Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations are perfect for Gabetta. In this work Tchaikovsky proves himself to be a brilliant orchestrator, uniting Western inspiration and Russian folk art in a virtuoso musical language that is not in the least bit influenced by 18th century music. For Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations Sol Gabetta is accompanied by the Kammerorchester Basel, conducted by Giovanni Antonini. This orchestra reaped great success here earlier playing music by Ludwig van Beethoven. This time too they perform a work by the great composer: Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony.
